"I received a free copy of the book in exchange for writing a review on my blog"
First off, I love the SNES! It's the best system because of Mario. However, I love the many other games that you can play on Super Nintendo, such as Zelda, Donkey Kong, Final Fantasy, and so many more! Even after all these new systems came out, I still return to the classic and continue to collect and buy more games that I've never played or heard of before.
The SNES Omnibus by Brett Weiss to be a super helpful guide and a great insight into all the games I've tried and never heard of. I really had no idea on the details of my favorite games or those I've never played before unless I searched each of them online. However, that all changed by owning this book! Many of my beloved games, that I've played constantly and a few new ones can be found right inside. Once this book arrived at my home, I just wanted to dance. Since I love playing video games ever since I was 5years old and this was my top favorite system to play.
This book isn't small or lightweight! It probably weighs 2lbs and is super huge in height, which works great with the information and images on each page. I do want to mention how nicely designed this book i with the images of the game cartridge and gameplay is presented inside the book and even just the cover page is brilliant! There is so much to be discovered inside, making it a one-of-a-kind book that I haven't seen anywhere else. Possibly this is the only book I'll ever need on SNES, A-M.
Plus, for a book on Super Nintendo games, this book makes it to the top of all books I own! It's filled with childhood memories and even ones from just playing them the other day. Each memory comes flowing back to me by taking a look at each page. For example of what you'll read about and see, these games are from Final Fantasy, The Legend of Zelda, Cool Spot, Cool World, Home Alone and even Adventures of Yogi Bear. Of course, that's just a few, there are so many more to view and read about.
Finally, what could be better than having all those games right in one place, a book. Very easy to reminisce on every fun game that was once played or those that will be on my list to get next!
By the way, It's not every single game, as this book only goes only up to M. However, I'm sure there will be another one to complete the rest of them and man I can't wait to own that one too!
